Fourteenth Manchester Phonology Meeting See LINGUIST List issue 16.3680 25-27 MAY 2006

In light of the recent sad news of the death of Peter Ladefoged, theorganisers of the Manchester Phonology Meeting ('mfm') would like todedicate the next meeting to his memory, to show our great respect for hiswork. We feel that this is especially appropriate as the meeting willfeature a special session on 'Fieldwork and Phonological Theory'.Ladefoged's contribution to the development of phonological fieldwork andthus to our knowledge of the phonology of the world's anguages is, ofcourse, immeasurable.

As well as the already advertised invited speakers on the topic (DanEverett, Larry Hyman and Keren Rice), the mfm will feature a discussion ofLadefoged's approach and contribution to fieldwork, led by Dan Everett andJacques Durand, and a collection for the Endangered Languages Fund,following the request that donations be made to ELF in his memory.

Abstracts may still be submitted for the mfm until 20th February 2006.
